Netizens are sick and tired of this fastfood practice
With the increasing cost of ingredients, food establishments have been faced with the challenge of maintaining their level of products and services, as well as the prices for their food for their consumers.
However, redditors have observed that there is a trend among the top fastfood franchises in the country whenever they announce a new “promo”.
According to redditor redkinoko: “Whenever Jollibee/Chowking/Mcdo use "sulit/affordable/savers/tipid" in their ad campaigns, they're really just increasing prices and shuffling the products around.”
It seems that he was not alone in making the observation as netizens echoed their dismay over the decreased portions of their favorite menu items with the increased prices for the food.
“Increasing the prices while decreasing ng serving,” Miracol lamented.
“If you're looking for affordable meals, fast food is the last place you should be looking into,” lancehunter01 quipped.
“Everyone who is smart enough should've known this already. There's so much pricing strategy not only on fast food chains but also on malls when they're on sale,” Just Monika said.
“I'd settle for buy 1 take 1 instead,” LecheKaFlan suggested. (ANGEL ONG)
